“Greek women and men, we look with pride at what the generation of the 1940s achieved, defending our homeland. We are and will remain ready to do the same. Honor to those who in their lives defined and guarded Thermopylae. Many Happy returns to our Greece and to Hellenism everywhere on Earth! Many happy returns Thessaloniki!”.

The quote “Honor to those who in their lives defined and guarded Thermopylae” is from the poem “Thermopylae” by our  Constantinos Cavafy.
